    nope. image size is the size of teh picture, like 640x480, or 1024x768 for example.

    mega pixels is the quality of the picture, for example 1mega pixel is low quality, while 5 mega pixels is really good quality.

    Sweet, I have a 5mp digital camera that im taking with me on my trip im going on. So I could change the image size to 1.2m (1280X960) to save some memory space, and still have the same quality of picture just smaller?

    why dont you try it? it will be lwoer quality, see how they look, if they are acceptable to you then yes leave it at 1.2 if u want.

    But I thought size and Mega Pixels were different things? Why would you lose quality? I thought the only thing you would lose was size?

    Actually it looks like the 1.2m is either the same or better than the 5.0m, what do you think? 1.2m 5.0m

    You&#39;ll want to send by e-mail or print at the smaller size I would think. Play around with it . Its the only way to learn.




    Edit: You&#39;ll need some software now&#33; Like Adobe Photoshop or the like to really have fun.

    The 5M picture is way better quality than the 1.2M.

    Does your camera have the option of jpeg compression? If so, you could take the picture at 5M pixels then compress it. Although you are bound to lose some image quality, you would lose far less quality that way.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    My camera doesnt have an option for jpeg compression. Is there another fast way to compress my pictures into jpeg after I have put them on my computer?
